Your cell phone charges off of USB, but can you really trust that charging station at the airport? Now you can control when to allow data in or out of your device with this little USB extension cable. You can plug it onto the end of any USB data/sync cable you have: mini-USB, micro-USB, Apple Lightn..
With some development boards, low power usage is an afterthought. Especially when price and usability is the main selling point. So what should you do when it's time to turn around and make that project of yours run on a battery or solar? Sure you could try to hot-air that regulator off, o..
Little clicky switches are standard input "buttons" on electronic projects. These work best in a PCB but can be used on a solderless breadboard as shown in this tutorial. The pins are normally open (disconnected) and when the button is pressed they are momentarily closed.
They come in a pack of 20, ..
By popular demand, we now have these buttons with a full colour RGB LED ring light! These chrome-plated metal buttons are rugged, but certainly not lacking in flair. Simply drill a 16mm hole into any material up to 1/4" thick and you can fit these in place – there's even a rubber gasket to keep..
The NXP Precision 9DoF breakout combines two of the best motion sensors we've tested here at Adafruit: The FXOS8700 3-Axis accelerometer and magnetometer, and the FXAS21002 3-axis gyroscope.These two sensors combine to make a nice 9-DoF kit, that can be used for motion and orientation sensing. In pa..
The cute PiTFT got even more adorable with this little primary display for Raspberry Pi in HAT form! It features a 2.2" display with 320x240 16-bit colour pixels. The HAT uses the high speed SPI interface on the Pi and can use the mini display as a console, X window port, displaying images or video ..
This is a great battery-backed real time clock (RTC) that allows your Raspberry Pi project to keep track of time if the power is lost. Perfect for data-logging, clock-building, time-stamping, timers and alarms, etc. Equipped with PCF8523 RTC, it works great with the Raspberry Pi and has na..
Design your own Bonnet or pHAT, attach custom circuitry and otherwise dress your Pi Zero with this jaunty prototyping Bonnet kit!To add to the Bonnet party, we have this Perma-Proto inspired plug in daughter board. It has a grid of 0.1" prototyping soldering holes for attaching chips, resistors..
Bend all audio files to your will with the Adafruit Music Maker FeatherWing + Amplifier! It's a fun-size version of our Music Maker shield for Arduino, and similar to our other Music Maker FeatherWing, but this one is even better - with an on-board 3 Watt amplifier! This powerful wing feat..
A button is a button, and a switch is a switch, but these translucent arcade buttons are in a class of their own. Particularly because they have LEDs built right in! That's right, you'll be button-mashing amidst a wash of beautiful light with these lil' guys. They're the same size as common min..
Add some crisp and compact audio to your project with this Mini External USB 2.0 Speaker. It's USB-only and does not require or use a 3.5mm audio jack. You'll get great audio, even with a device that doesn't have a head phone jack. And since it is powered over USB, there's no need to charge it ..
Listen to this good news - we now have a breakout board for a super tiny I2S MEMS microphone. Just like 'classic' electret microphones, MEMS mics can detect sound and convert it to voltage, but they're way smaller and thinner. This microphone doesn't even have analog out, its purely digital. The I2S..
